What is PRP?
PRP is a natural product made from your own blood and thus is completely bioidentical, safe, and holistic. Your blood is made up mostly of water and protein, providing a liquid solution that contains white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets, which contain growth factors vital for healing and spurring cellular renewal.
To make PRP, we draw one or more vials of your blood, then use a centrifuge to separate out the platelets and make a plasma that’s rich in platelets.
This platelet-rich plasma boosts your body’s growth and healing processes. It has been used successfully for pain relief, joint healing, hair regrowth, and more.
Using PRP for facial rejuvenation
We use tiny microneedles to inject the PRP into your face in the areas needing a lift. The microneedles deliver minuscule amounts of the growth factor-rich PRP while stimulating the area just below the skin.
This stimulation prompts collagen growth, while the PRP enhances the growth and helps create a strong, healthy supporting structure between your layers of skin. This collagen growth process plumps your face, filling in fine lines and wrinkles and making your skin softer and more supple.
In most cases, you can see results after the first treatment, but it usually takes several treatments for the full effects to be realized. The best thing about PRP as a cosmetic enhancement is that the risk of side effects is very low since it’s made from your own blood.
